Emmanuel – Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir

The Brooklyn Tabernacle is a church in Brooklyn, NY and features an amazingly talented 285 person choir. Most of its members are untrained making it even more amazing that they’ve won six grammys, have three DVDs and have released numerous CD’s.

Last year, they released another Christmas CD — A Brooklyn Tabernacle Christmas. You can find it (and all of their music) here.

When I saw they were performing “Emmanuel,” I assumed it was the Michael W. Smith version. I was wrong. It’s their own — and it’s very good (as is the entire cd).

So…today I’m featuring Emmanuel and “Christmas Joy.”  (Emmanuel is an audience recording and is not the best audio quality but is still a tremendous song.)

Christmas Joy is a medley of traditional Christmas songs with a definitive BTC take on each.By the way, if you page down through last year’s posts, you’ll find their other Christmas medley (which is also very good).
